Up for auction is a 1955 Winchester model 88 in .308. This rifle is in excellent condition. The bore is bright, the stock shows minor wear from years of use but it is still in great shape with no cracks. The serial number is 4 digits proving that it is indeed a first year production rifle. The bluing is very nice and the sights are in fine condition. NOTE: The scope in the picture does NOT come with this rifle. More pictures are available upon request. Comes with the original 4 round magazine which is in great condition. Has original flip up rear sight and standard front sight. I will also throw in a peep site that fits on this rifle that I bought separately. The leather sling will also come with the rifle. If you are looking for a tried and true hunting rifle, the model 88 is it.
